Stanley's Kids...Our Mission
Stanley's Kids mission is to provide aid to children with special needs and abilities in Nicaragua. Since our beginning in November 2016, Stanley's Kids has continued to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families. In our third year, we now have two classrooms that provide safe and nurturing places where these children and young adults are accepted and are taught according to their individual abilities, at no cost to their families.
Our Managua classroom, which began in May of this year, is already filled to capacity. We limit the size of our classes to 20 students to allow each individual the best opportunity for learning. Our goal for 2020 is to add an additional class at this facility.
Our second classroom began in February 2018 on the property of a nearby school in the impoverished village of Tomas Borge, Nicaragua. In June of this year, the class relocated to our own facility in the same village. This classroom currently holds thirteen children and young adults and allows them to come together several times a week to receive social interaction, education as their abilities allow and instruction in art, music and other skills.
As word has spread throughout the city of Managua and the village of Tomas Borge, we are receiving daily inquiries as to how other children can become involved and receive the benefits of this program. As with all programs of this type, funds are required to properly carry out this mission.
Our 2019 Stanley's Kids Ministry budget is $26,500, and we cannot achieve this goal without the donations of generous individuals who believe in our ministry and its goals. Our budget covers yearly salaries for two highly trained and licensed Special Needs Teachers, an Assistant Teacher in our Managua Classroom, a Nicaraguan Director to carry out day to day activities of the ministry within the country, Student Supplies and Transportation and a new Student Work Program.
Stanley's Kids is a non-profit organization. All donations are fully tax deductible and go directly to ministering to these children. Any donations that go above and beyond our yearly budget will allow us to assist with additional projects throughout the year such as improved housing, additional medical needs and physical therapy for many students.
Donations made through the Generosity Trust are processed through a Secure Server and are Tax Deductible
